Apple slows down iPhone 5C production
October 17 , 2013
Apple is asking its suppliers to cut the production of the recently released iPhone 5C, which has been criticized for being expensive.
Two Taiwanese assemblers of the company have cut the production by 20 percent and 30 percent respectively; another manufacturer mentioned that it was cutting orders by 50 percent.
Apple's traditional upgrade, which is the even more expensive iPhone 5S is selling almost as much as the 4S did after the iPhone 5 came out.
ZDNet mentioned that these cuts could just be the result of "inventory tweaking more than a dramatic slowdown" and that its too early to assume that the device is a flop.
